The new John Lewis Christmas TV advert with The Man on The Moon.

This is the story of a young girl called Lily. Looking at the moon through her family telescope one night, she is amazed at what she finds, a man on the moon. Lily watches on as our man goes about his chores, all alone up there. She becomes determined to get something to the moon, to send him a message and show him that someone down here is thinking of him.

British people (and many others) think that when you look at the moon, you can see the silouette of a man (others see just a face), so they talk about "the man of the moon" because in old English Anglosaxon the moon was a masculine word (click here for more information)

I would like to leave this city
This old town don't smell too pretty and
I can feel the warning signs running around my mind
And when I leave this island I'll book myself into a soul asylum
And I can feel the warning signs running around my mind

So here I go, still scratching around the same old hole
My body feels young but my mind is very old
So what do you say?
You can't give me the dreams that are mine anyway
You're half the world away
Half the world away
Half the world away
I've been lost I've been found but I don't feel down.

And when I leave this planet, you know I'd stay but I just can't stand it and
I can feel the warning signs running around my mind
And if I could leave this spirit, I'll find me a hole and I'll leave in it
And I can feel the warning signs running around my mind

So here I go still scratching around in the same old hole
My body feels young but my mind if very old
So what do you say?
You can't give me the dreams that are mine anyway
You're half the world away
Half the world away
Half the world away
I've been lost I've been found but I don't feel down

No, I don't feel down
No, I don't feel down
No, I don't feel down
I don't feel down
I don't feel down
I don't feel down
